  1. It's after last performance Saturday evening!! So late night home!!!! Xx
  2. To all those going to Induction Day at The Hammond tomorrow have a fabulous day. It's truly an amazing school. All the staff, academic, admin and dance are fabulous dedicated people. The Boarding houses are fab friendly places and more like a home than a boarding house and the children are well looked after. Our dd is so happy here. Enjoy and Good luck for September.
  3. Haha would have loved to have gone today but had a prior meeting to attend! Hopefully hear all about it from dd later.
  4. Just wanted to say Happy 100th Birthday today to all at The Hammond School Chester. They've celebrated today with a beautiful Birthday Cake. Hope they've all had a brilliant day. A fantastic achievment. Can't wait now for the Summer Production. Here's to the next 100 yrs 🎂🍰💐
  5. How lovely Ballet4Boyz I'm reading your post with tears in my eyesI couldn't have said it better myself! We can't believe 2 schools could be so different! Our dd's confidence is growing week by week, we're not there yet, but the Hammond with all its staff, admin, academic, dance and especially the house parents are building that confidence back. Its going to take time but we know we're going to get there. This thread is an absolute godsend - its so open for anyone to see which I think says alot about the school - its an open friendly and nurturing school with helful and friendly parents and pupils. To any new pupils joining this amazing school in September good luck you are going to be well looked after 😚😚
  6. Thank you annaliesay will do x
  7. Thank you all. Will try over weekend.
  8. Thank you pas de quatre. Did think that, just wasnt sure you 'could' iron it!! Will give it a go. Thanks again x
  9. Sadly there are hundreds of children out there who train from a very young age, do JA's, go off to top vocational schools at 11. Go on to top vocational schools at 16 for 3 years and still don't get into The Royal Ballet! Enough said!!
  10. Hi all you knowledgeable tutu ladies hope you can help. I've bought a Capezio pink tutu skirt on knickers for my dd on line. Received it yesterday and on removing it from box and bag, the top layer stiff netting is quite creased! Firstly DH said send it back!! But then he suggested hanging it in a steamy bathroom, but I still don't think creases will come out. Any suggestions please. That sorted, I then plan to tack net layers together, hoop it and put top layer decoration on. Is this possible with a pre made tutu skirt base please? Will then be using it with a decorated leotard! Suggestions much appreciated please. And thanks in advance.
  11. Hiya Will they not take them back at the box office? There must be people not on the forum that still want tickets?
  12. Hi Happymum Dd did this last year and also does the Malvern workshops. No not everyone takes tutu's (mostly the black tutu on pants type) to either of these courses. Dd took hers the other year but it wasnt used! Practically everyone wears pretty skirts tho and there is someone there that sells them. So take plenty of pocket money for that! (£18/20 each).
